2nd Set: An enthusastic "Hey Pocky" revitalizes the show with a flurry of energy. Alright, a goody "Truckin" steamrolls ahead. Why does a frickin' N Carolina crowd cheer when 'New York' is mentioned?! That's pathetic. At first I thought we were going to be treated with a 'Smokestack' or 'Spoonful' but they pussy out into a "Terrapin." It almost reaches tumultuous scales, slighly held back by ordinaryness... But purposefully attacked. Nice streamside outro jam; when Mickey messes with his percussions sounds like RUSH's 'Passage to Bangkok.' "Drums" is predictable whereas "Space" features wary, menacing tones until about 90 seconds before they allow Brent's lullabye "I Will" to take center stage. It's so poignant and sweet intentioned. Man I so wanna rock out now, "Watchtower" is good but impeded by everyone's reluctance to combat Jerry, so he's enhanced...but considering he's not brilliant, per se tonight, it's solid but, you know..."Dew" is patiently and passionately conveyed but not overwhelming as to alter my breathing patterns. Ahhh...relief with "Good Lovin." Despite Bobby's efforts, it's a little too easy-going for my tastes.
We're ending our time in N. Carolina with a 'hug around your mate cause the Dead are leaving our vicinity' "Brokedown."
3 1/4 stars

Nice FOB with lots of crowd action for you live show fans. The Hey Pockey Way is taken from this night for the So Many Roads: 1965-1995 [BOX SET].
last greensboro show until renovations in '91 those shows are magical. Still a great Brent moment and a stellar Dew ***1/2
